All About Bluestone
What is bluestone? Bluestone is a term that can actually refer to a few different varieties of natural stone, including limestone, sandstone, dolerite, slate, and basalt. In the U.S., however, the term is typically used to describe either sandstone or limestone. Bluestone comes in a muted rainbow of earth tones: dark blue, gray, and brown are the most common, and each source of stone features unique shades. Like many other types of natural stone, bluestone is sold in the form of pavers, gravel, bricks, and boulders.
